In the book Fahrenheit 451 the lives that people live are a lot different than ours but are also very similar. There are firefighters but instead of putting out fires they start them and burn books. Instead of encouraging reading they made it illegal. There is a mechanical hound that goes around and kills people who have a book or read books. In this book people don’t have emotion and just go about their day pretending everything is fine with the world and the society that they live in.
” ” (Bradbury 78). Usually when we think or hear of the word “hero” we think of those who fight for our country or who are in war and put their lives at risk every day for us. In this story Montag is in fact a hero because he was a fireman for his community and showed many different acts of courage and bravery. Montag stood up for what he believed in and his rights for being able to read books. He did all of these things even if meant losing people in his life that he cared about.
